The February Flying Unicorn Kit of The Month Celebrate Every Love contains beautiful papers from the Bella J'Adore line that have a gorgeous sheen to them. I had been following along with Creative JumpStart 2013 and couldn't wait to try the crackle effects background. I had a photo of Brennan at the pool on a recent vacation printed out and ready to go and it seemed to fit the crackled background beautifully.
For the crackle I spread Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy liberally over part of my page, and let it dribble down like water before putting it aside to dry.
To accent the crackles a little more I rubbed on some Inka-Gold in Gold with my fingertip (I also used the Inka-Gold on the small blue Prima roses and to accentuate the fussy cut swirls from another piece of the Bella J'Adore paper).
I finished the whole thing off with some Pop! Microbeads and a fabric heart from my stash (upcycled off a store-bought card I was given) and edged the layout with two shades of blue Gelatos blended with some water.
Thanks so much for stopping by! As I mentioned yesterday the February Kit of the Month sold out in 2 days, but there are tons of CHA goodies arriving in the Flying Unicorn Store daily, so be sure to check those out!
